Abstract

In 1995, when Nicholas Negroponte stated “Being digital is different” (p.231), he may not have fully under- stood the prescience such a seemingly generic yet succinct maxim would have on a wide variety of industries, in a wide variety of geographic regions, on an equally wide variety of learners. Admittedly, his landmark text on the coming ubiquity of information and communications technology did not focus specifically on education, training & development, or teaching & learning. Yet there is perhaps no better single phrase that could sum up the impact these technologies have had on distance education pedagogy. For good or bad, when it comes to distance education specifically and computer-mediated learning in general, digital is different.
